Submit Your Dog Photos for Automation Research Project




The Mechanical Engineering Department needs pictures of dogs to be used in the development of a program that could take automotive safety features to the next level.
If the research project is successful, it will help recognize if a dog is on a leash and improve the automation of vehicles. All images should include at least one human and one dog, on or off a leash.

Submit your photos here.
